To make a monkey, you can not do without: • scissors; • clerical glue; • rulers; • a simple pencil; • semi-cardboard double-sided yellow and red colors; • A black marker. The basic steps on the way to creating a monkey. 1. As you know, 2016 is the year of the fire monkey, so we will make our own craft of red cardboard. From this material you should make a rectangle 100x90 mm. 2. It is necessary to fold a segment of red color into the tube. The edge must be joined with glue. 3. Then go to the execution of the face and head. To do this, take a two-sided red half-cardboard and cut out a small circle. 4. Take a 2-sided half-cardboard yellow tint and perform other elements of the muzzle. In the process of work we get from them a heart, an oval and 2 circles of a smaller size. 5. On a circle of red color we attach with the help of glue the heart. 6. After that, on an oval of yellow color we draw a black marker with a nose and mouth looking like 2 fatty points. 7. And then take the oval and attach a piece of double-sided adhesive tape on the foam from the back side. 8. Remove the top of the adhesive tape, and then attach the oval to the red circle. In addition, a pair of yellow circles should be attached to the back of the head. As a result, monkey ears are obtained. 9. A marker of black color we put the missing details on the face. 10. The resulting monkey head is glued to the tube of red color. It will be the trunk. 11. Next, we turn to the creation of the monkey's legs. To this end, two 35x10 mm stripes are cut from the double-sided red half-cardboard, and four paws. 12. Strips should be attached to the sides of the trunk. At the tips of the bands are fastened paws of yellow color. 13. It is necessary to slightly bend the paws and with the help of glue fix them to the inner part of the tube. 14. So we approached the stage of creating a tail in a monkey. It will be red. We take a piece of 2-sided half-cardboard of the desired color and draw a tail on it, cut out with scissors. To the back of the body you need to attach the tail. 15. After that, we cut out a yellow oval paper and draw a black circle with a black marker. 16. We attach an oval to the trunk of the trunk. As a result, we got the tummy of a monkey. 17. Finally, the work of the fiery monkey, which is the symbol of the New Year 2016 - is ready! It can be used as an element of decor, an original children's toy or a stand. Let's talk about another way of makingmonkeys. It is not complicated, and the finished result will bring you and your guests joyous feelings for the New Year. To create this monkey, you need: • an oval made of foam plastic with a height of 50 mm; • a ball made of wood with a diameter of 30 mm; • ball of wood for legs, hands and tail 1,2 cm in diameter; • brown wire; • markers; • glue gun. Create a monkey. Course of work. With the help of glue from the gun and wire we process the oval from the foam. At the same time, we cut off the edge of the wire in the form of a cochlea and proceed to attaching with glue in the lower part of the foam testicle. Wire strips should be placed as tightly as possible while covering the white color completely. A ball of wood with a diameter of 30 mm should be drilled through. Next, draw a picture of the monkey's face. Through the drilled hole we conduct 2 wires of brown color. As a result we have monkey hands. Applying the glue-gun, attach the ears to the monkey, and after that we place on the hands monkey balls from the tree. Then make a through hole and attach the body to the head. To produce the legs, brown wire is also needed. Through them also need to be carried around the big ball and fix on the body of the monkey. Brown tail should be made of wire of the appropriate color, along the edges also we put balls of wood. After that, we move on to drawing the muzzle of the monkey and it's ready!
